Did you fill the filter with diesel before fitting? you need to try and remove as much air as possible or you will have starting problems..

All been covered already! make sure its fitted securely and with no gaps, and fill with diesel to eliminate as much air as possible. Also make sure you fitted the filter the right way round!
